AutoX Event - 3 SVTf's... Pics & Vids (7-9-06)

first time autoXing this season as they had canceled all races near me so i had to drive over an hour to get to this place in Fostoina, Ohio. I got way to much sun and i'm complete burnt! Great place and location. track was a little slippery/gummy but it was a nice smooth course. They've been at that location for 35 years now. i finally got to try out my in-car camera mount and it worked great, just forgot about when you have your windows and sunroof open it would create a LOT of wind noise. i'll post vidoes later when they become available on video.google.com. till then i'll just post pics of some of the cars taht were at this event. there was also a red 05 ZX4 and the person is on this site here too, maybe he'll come forward and announce himself. i will go back there again. very pleased with the track and everyone that ran it


Video of the Black SVT Focus W/ 18" Rims Running in the AutoX
